It will stop.But, you still need bed rest and cyclogest should be inserted through anus that is if you're still seeing blood. I am inserting mine now through anus because I did cerclage.

From experience, you still need more rest and if possible always lie on your left or right and take enough water(at least 4liters a day). With the drugs given, I've strong faith that you will testify like ours too.

I was in your shoes before, but God took control by using doctors and I also obeyed the instructions given to me.

No lifting of heavy weight or bending down, No hot food, avoid stairs and suspend any activities, only 30minutes walk is required in a day until you did not see the blood for more than 2weeks.

Thanks so much. This has been very helpful.

I am actually doing intravaginal insert, I hope I am doing the right thing.

I didn't do any cerclage. At what point do I need that?
Are you on bed rest too and for how long?
The water therapy is a new one. No one adviced me on that. I actually take lots of water already because the season itself is very dry but, I don't know if I am taking enough. Having to always empty my bladder is Linda stressful to me, so I try to limit my intakes.

I didn't know about hot food as well.
I like my food very hot. I don't know if pepper is a bad idea too because I love pepper a lot.

I keep feeling weak. Dunno if I should take ORT.

[quote author=Mummy4life1 post=85234357]Ma'am, what do you mean by spot red at interval. The interval means every 7days or what?

Well, I started taking cyclogest from week 2 till now. I was told by my doctors that I will stop taking it @28weeks even though I'm 20weeks plus now.

Like this morning, I noticed wetness and I cleaned, it was blood but, that was all.

Last Monday, I also noticed I had some brownish discharge.

Last Friday, I was so down with fever and I as well saw reddish discharges .

Hello mothers in the house.

Merry Christmas all.

Ok, it's testimony time.

Most you remember my story very well. The last time I was here, I was scared I might be pregnant again and I wasn't emotionally ready for that. I needed rest from all the miscarriages. Especially, after I started bleeding again, having missed my period for 10 days already.

Took lots of advice her to do pt and after 1 week interval, both attempts came out +ve. I took to a scan and baby was already 7 weeks (OMG). Doctor adviced me to start cyclogest treatment for 2 weeks. It is a progesterone treatment. Ladies, that drug is verryyyyyyy expensive but we started and have gone 7 days now.

Another gynaecologist suggested I go on 2 weeks bed rest. So, I took one week off from work and stayed home. Hubby has been wonderful at helping me sit in one place and getting all the chores done.

So, I am officially 8 weeks gone and still spot red at intervals, even with this treatment, what do you have to say?
Am I in good shape?
Is it normal?
I am keeping strong and faithful but, I can't go all the way without you mommas telling me how far.

Kindly advice.

Have you done a pregnancy test? Why not do it. What if its implantation bleeding? Take a test first so we know what else to think. It is well dear

My doctor adviced me to do that and I did, it was +ve. I wasn't really excited because the bleeding announces my past painful experiences and I didn't want any of those again.

It better not come at all than with complications.
God can actually give me a seed easy to tender and rip.

Well, Doctor said I should just continue with folic acid only till after a week and I will repeat the pt again.

Sorry about your previous losses. I believe this one has come to stay.

First trimester losses are usually due to hormonal imbalance, rhesus factor and/or stress.
Second trimester losses are usually due to cervical incompetence or uterine related factors.
Third trimester losses are mostly due to stress, baby factor.

If you're experiencing recurrent first trimester losses, it's most likely hormonal.
After your first miscarriage, your doctor should have monitored your hormones right before you got pregnant again and given you some shots to prevent the next one if he observes that you have hormonal imbalance.

You should first do a urine and blood pt to ascertain if you're pregnant or not. I believe you can still take the shots if you have hormonal issues.

Wishing you lots of luck kiss

Thanks dear

I have done all necessary tests but even when I mentioned taking the progesterone shots, my doctor didn't react like it was necessary yet.

His reactions keep giving me the gnugde like, worry less Mrs.

Can you find a very good hospital and doctor(s) for monitoring if you haven't done that already. It will greatly help. Sometimes, it's as simple as your doc placing you on progesterone shots n injections etc if your case warrants it. Sometimes, it takes more plus early and constant monitoring including scans . All the best.

I keep reminding my doctor that my last progesterone test wasn't really a good one but, the old professor seems to be handling thing the ancient ways.

He doesn't express any form of pressure or anxiety but, simply tells me to relax and not to worry.
All he administered was folic acid and duphostone

Happy Sunday Momma's in the house.

I was here 2 months ago to tell my sad story of a second miscarriage within the space of a year and how I still kept faith.

After my evacuation, my first period flow came normally within Oct/nov.
Truly, I decide to rest and ttc again by Dec but, somewhere around Nov, I noticed and had implantation feelings. I wasn't paying much attention because I thought i should have a lil rest from conceptions and miscarriages.

But, when I missed my period for a whole week, it dawned on me that I was really pregnant. I was excited but tried so well not to disappoint myself and mostly my hubby again. So, I kept this observation to myself.

Surprisingly, today, I felt wet when I went to the convenience and I cleaned, I saw blood. I shook my head and thought, thank God I didn't tell hubby but, then again I asked myself, why would my period wait for too long to come?
A whole 1wk + apart?

I fixed my pad but, just after a few drops, the blood seized.
I kept watching but nothing and no pains.
What is this?
Is it another failed implantation because I was sure I felt those implantation cramps and spotting.

Please, I need a strong advice.

What could really be wrong?
Repeated miscarriages?
Weak womb? Why


I am not feeling sad but I am worried something is wrong and I am not aware yet and I need to discover this before I am ready to conceive again.

Please advice.

Thank you

Hallo mommas!

I have been following this thread from page one since my Gf introduced me to it a month ago.
I have never commented but, all the stories here have been helpful.

Today, I am writing because I finally allowed it all to get to me today.

So, Last week (2019) Thursday, I was in a work meeting when I suddenly realised my pant was getting wet.
At first I thought, "am I urinating on masef"? After about 10mins, I took to the convenience, only to realise I was bleeding and I was stained.
I was really freaked out and then I started to speak to my God, my only absolution.

I quickly had a memory rush down the lane.

Last year (2018) August, I was about 8 weeks. I had had a very busy/stressful day at work and then I jumped into my momma's car for about 45mins to an hr trip back to my family home.

I often have abdominal cramps at intervals but my frn said not to worry, "it's implantation. It's the baby growing and so on.

So, that faithful Friday, I had these cramps come severally and fade away. My loss only came the next day, after I had slept almost half my Saturday, I woke up to notice blood.
It started gradually and then it got heavy with painful cramps.
To cut the story short, I was rushed to the hospital but all attempts to keep the baby was abortive.

To mention that this wasn't my greatest pain but, the pain I experienced in the theatre during evacuation was nothing I had ever felt in all my life.

Fast forward to last week (2019) Thursday.

So, I cried in the convenience, both with faith and fear and I spoke to God.
Please, may I not tell the same sad story again, Lord.

Funny, i felt nothing.
It was different.
No pains and no cramps.
I called hubby and quickly got to the nearest lab, only for the specialist to hand a -ve result to me again.

I felt a sharp pain in my heart.

I had stopped bleeding and there was no clot or heavy flow, I asked him, why this result

He tried to explain but when he noticed I was clouding, he quickly recommended that I see my doctor.

Hubby tried his best to comfort me and we silently went home.

I still felt strong that nothing was wrong and I went home, cried, prayed and pleaded God.
Yet, after several other confirmations, the resolution was another evacuation which I finally took the strength to do last Wednesday.
I was 11 weeks already, according to the doctor.

I did my best in my knowledge to ensure I didn't have a sad ending.

Folic acid
B complex

Yet, here I am feeling strong, faithful but sad.
Gone through another gruesome evacuation pains and stuck with antibiotics again.

Looking forward to the time when God will give me the child I had prayed for.
The seed that will stay.

Thank you Jesus.
